Agathocles / Landfill (Destrukto Muzik)

Actually, I wrote so many reviews about different AG splits, that I simply run out of words, haha, but I will do my best. So this is a new split tape wich includes live stuff from Belgian veterans and raw but proper recording from Landfill. This release has a simple cover, I think guys used image from the old B movie “The Story Of Ricky”. Everything looks very DIY. And I`m afraid that`s all that I can tell you about the visual part of this split.

AG side is 8 minutes long and has a live recording from 2016. First of all, I want to say, that this is not the worst live material that I heard. The Bass drum and vocal are the loudest parts here, but I still can recognize some riffs and the guitar sound is not so horribly cluttered. Honestly, even these songs are damn raw and messy I still enjoyed them. Also, I really dig the live energy and mood of that gig.

And here is my favorite part of this split. Landfill managed to record really pumping and nasty grindcore. This is not super-violent, speed, or hyper-blasting kind of grind, but these songs hooked me on. Sloppy blast beats, raw sound, pitch-shifted vocals, and buzzing guitar noise. And especially I love the epic intro in the first song, that stuff reminds me of some old stuff from Dead Infection. Simply great and unboring work!

Rating: AG 7.5/10    Landfill 8/10
